Going to try to live tweet some take-homes from this panel on #neuroracism for anyone who is missing it. #BlackInNeuroWeek @blackinneuro
Nice to see that the panelists are a mixture of later and earlier career neuroscientists!

#Doctors and #Medicine need an #AI update.
Bold and convincing book.

@EricTopol
#ArtificialIntelligence has the ability to bring the fourth industrial revolution. Healthcare is deemed to be an industry which can get transformed the most.

#DeepMedicine
@EricTopol is a #cardiologist, historian of the present and a #MedicalFuturist.
He believes that the way we practice medicine now ( #ShallowMedicine ) relies too heavily on human inputs and is thus plagued by human biases and imperfections.

Looking for ways to bring discussions of #racism in your #science classes? Some ideas I use in class & in talks e.g. genome-wide sequencing studies, databases are skewed. Must be accounted for when extrapolating these data (e.g. personalized medicine) nature.com/news/genomics-… 1/n
Especially when those findings are used to develop decision #algorithms otherwise #racism gets "baked in" #ArtificialIntelligence is not neutral. Healthcare outcomes reflect societal racism nature.com/articles/d4158…

What’s today’s hacker-generation learn path? (Thread) “In my times” we were good at C/Python, wrote exploits with its shellcode using gdb/olly to reverse, we read books on #algorithms, unix internals, protocol design and RISC architectures were beautiful. Regex was a most. (1/1)
I remember reading books of Knuth “art of computer programming”, Cormen’s algorithm design, the old C programming by Kernighan, Unix Internals. Moreover we were into OS design, I used to have a SGI fuel to experiment with schedulers/kernel in IRIX on MIPS64, SPARC and other (1/2)
We used to mock of Theo de Raadt’s OpenBSD’s phrase of “no vulnerabilities in the default install” when we were involved in the first exploit for it. We collected srcs of OSes (not OSS). I published stego tools, ELF encryptors and in-memory patching modules in packetstorm (1/3)

Deloitte, 2017: "Operations will cease to be delivered by humans."

Deloitte: The #Future of Operations, Deloitte Global Impact Report, Nov 13 2017

#FourthIndustrialRevolution
#ControlledDemolition

#Covid19 is the conduit to the #4IR now in full motion. As people come to terms w/ what is being forced upon humanity, we will soon regret that we did not unite to oppose to draconian lockdowns/expanding surveillance that will serve to protect/insulate ruling classes from revolt.
#UBI (universal basic income) is a tool designed by the rich to stave off #Molotov cocktails - while at the same time enriching themselves even further. The ruling class knows full well what they are unleashing - but the citizenry does not.

I will be summarizing the following video which discusses current topics. I found the video relevant because it discusses the wide range of what we are watching play out before our eyes. Please share this thread.

m.facebook.com/story.php?stor…
80 federal, state and local law enforcement officials in #Virginia arrested drug traffickers. They are SHUTTING DOWN the cartels/traffickers which is all part of the circle of elite/globalist take-down.
We know that Fauci lied in Congress about Encephalitis in #vaccines and we know about the email in 2013 about #HRC. In this video, it is suggested that maybe #Fauci has "flipped". A lot of politicians are flipping, giving up and talking. It's possible.

Great Sunday read: @amnesty report by @TanyaOCarroll @JoeWestby on the human rights impact of @Google & @facebook business models.

In this thread,I present some thoughts for folks interested in the intersection of human rights advocacy and academia. (👋 @oiioxford students)1/16
I will try to weave together the report's 4 key topics:

1. #surveillancecapitalism
2. #privacy
3. #AI
4. #market #concentration

with the work of various academics working on the social justice implications of platforms. 2/16
1. Surveillance capitalism:
The report drives home its main point: "It's the economy stupid!"

or as they frame it:

"The technology behind the internet is not incompatible with our rights, but the business model Facebook and Google have chosen is."

Today's Applied Complexity Symposium begins with a panel on Computation and Complex Economies, feat. Rob Axtell, Joshua Epstein, @C4COMPUTATION, Blake LeBaron, John Miller, & @MelMitchell1

(Follow this thread for live coverage all day...)

#complexsystems #economics
4 Principles of Collective #Computation:

1 Ground truth (objective reality)
2 Effective ground truth (what we agree on, whether or not it is accurate)
3 #Information can be collectively encoded in #networks
4 Outputs are a product of collective dynamics

@C4COMPUTATION right now
"I think #economics really needs to adopt a generative framework with agent-based models of cognitively plausible software people...[and] we don't choose to fear."

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/google-censors…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

So excited that the paper that is the culmination of my #PhD came out in @ScienceTM today! As the COVER story! Can't wait to share this 6-yr labor of love with the world. Here are some of the main takeaways from the paper:

#BigDay #HealthTech #PortableMRI #HydrationSensor
MRI is a powerful diagnostic tool but it is too expensive ($1.5M) and time-consuming (10-60min) to use on a regular basis. We developed a portable NMR sensor that can harness the diagnostic power of quantitative MRI at a fraction of the time (<1min) and cost ($1k).
It is not necessary to generate images in order to take quantitative magnetic resonance (relaxometry) measurements. Removing the need to generates images makes the hardware simpler, smaller, and cheaper.

I wrote about this for the @MIT_alumni blog: alum.mit.edu/slice/grad-lif…

@DrDenaGrayson @VP @jaketapper In the U.S. at least, air pollution is down since 1992 for every single pollutant the EPA measures. And our CO2 emissions are down since the mid-1990s, yet #ClimateCatastrophists claim NONE of that improvement has slowed global, or U.S. #ClimateChange.
epa.gov/clean-air-act-…
@DrDenaGrayson @VP @jaketapper For more than forty-five years the Clean Air Act has cut pollution as the U.S. economy has grown.
Carbon dioxide is not pollution. It’s colorless, odorless, and tasteless.

#Responsibility of #programmers for their #algorithms
😇Shooting stars: from expert advisor to #spoofing criminal
👉Spoofing #algo coder partially acquitted
🤦‍♂️CFTC and FBI fail with indictment of the programmer who developed the algo at the heart of the infamous 2010 #FlashCrash
😇Jitesh Thakkar, the founder and president of Edge Financial Technologies, one of the leading firms for #software development for #algorithmic and #highfrequencytrading #hft, was acquitted on April 9th, 2019 of the count of #conspiracy to commit spoofing.
⚠️Thakkar’s case is the first in the US where a programmer is prosecuted for his involvement in the development of a manipulative algorithm and shows regulators’ willingness to prosecute programmers in addition to the users of such algorithms.

Since people have been asking I thought I'd recap my #dystopia talk at @theuxcrunch from Thursday. The examples used are not what if scenarios. These all happened. #triggerwarning's apply. If you can make it thru to the end I have suggestions for how we can claw back some hope.
This is a quote you’ve all probably seen a million times. #Advertising & #techie shitheads love quoting it before they do trends porn. What they never seem to understand is how politically subversive the last bit is. B/c those wankers abuse it I swore I’d never use it.
Still, paraphrasing it is useful for my point. One person’s future is another person’s dystopia and thanks to the fundamental power of the Internet as a tool for distribution we can spread dystopia far and wide. Often before we know it, realise it, or even imagine it.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

I don’t know what these are. Goddam, Twitter is weird sometimes.
Do all you guys get these by the way or is it just me?
I said four bucks. My theory is that they’re trying to work out quite how out of touch I am so they can start charging me $25 a pint for milk at Safeway. #algorithms

Mark: "Horses?"
CMS: "We heard it's a 100 Horsepower engine."
Mark: "That's just a metaphor…?"
.@CommonsCMS: "No, we know there are horses. That engine is a black box. You're not being transparent about where the horses are."
Mark: "But that's not how cars really work…"
CMS: "Everyone knows that cars are driven by horsepower. We want to see the horses." #algorithms

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n
